Table 20. Methods for calculating the amount of biomass resources.* Reprinted with permission from Croatian Journal of Forest Engineering, 26(2), Yoshioka, T, Sakai H, Amount and availability of forest biomass as an energy resource in a mountainous region in Japan: a GIS-based analysis, 59–70, Table 2, © 2005, Forestry Faculty of Zagreb University.

*The coefficients shown in this table have been basically standardized by the Japanese government (Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Research Council Secretariat (ed.) 1991).
